  1. oh God this poem gave me flashbacks to fall! I raked and bagged leaves for my parents. I had 7 body sized trash bags filled with red maple leaves by the time I had to quit due to arm fatigue! Every time the wind knocked the bag over, it looked like a giant black worm was bleeding on the lawn. Frank Hebert would have loved it.

  2. Ryan, you will not believe. I’m in the stone age right now. I’m travelling and My phone data pack has exhausted. I’m on 3 g speed now. So the image doesn’t load. But i promise to come back to you when I get back to civilization. I hope I’m not being over confident when I say I know you look forward to my comments. Yay! πŸ™‚

    • Hahaha-that’s what I was going to say (enjoy your comments)!!!
      No problem, Manan, have a lovely trip. Where are you traveling? How nice. I’ve been away from WP myself for a few days and have lots to catch up on. Hope you’re well and thank you for your thoughts πŸ™‚

  3. This didn’t get me thinking about raking leaves (which I find pretty enjoyable), but rather had my theological gears rolling. There are too many days where I feel like things are piling up faster than I can handle them! πŸ˜› Great piece. :]

  4. Some bleeding is almost impossible to stop. Love the metaphor here, my friend, Hindsight always has a way at teaching us that sometimes, we need to rake them the second we see that first one fall. Great work, as always!

  5. Ouch.. regrets – the tree knows the leaves will fall, it knows it will hurt.. but it knows new ones will replace the old ones, and sweet fragrance will reign again.

  6. Wow–I’d forgotten (again) that it’s Fall there–what a lovely, lovely poem! (I confess I long for fall/autumn–spring/summer is SO noisy where I live, gets on my last nerve πŸ™‚ ) Sorry for rambling on… πŸ™‚
